It’s very simple that highly productive people are not from Mars. It’s just they are more than better at minimizing or even eliminating distractions at work, use modern technology to their advantage, and combine smart work with earnest efforts to deliver the goods consistently. Automating most of your tasks and improving team collaboration can help you significantly to simplify complex tasks and get more done in less time.
“It’s not always that we need to do more but rather that we need to focus on less.” Nathan W. Morris, author and finance expert
Do you know we Really Don’t Work For 8 Hours In A Day?
“A UC Irvine study revealed that, on average, office workers are interrupted every 11 minutes. And yet it takes around 25 minutes to get back on track.”
As per the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American works 8.8 hours every day. Yet a study of nearly 2,000 full-time office workers found that most people aren’t working for most of the time they’re at work.
According to research, the average employee stays productive for less than three hours a day. Yes, you read that right. Just three! Most employees finish three hours of work and spend the rest of their time on water cooler conversations, gossiping, checking their social media accounts, making calls, or searching for a job opportunity elsewhere.
